The Location
With a population of approximately 64,000, this is New South Wales’s largest inland city and offers everything you would expect of a modern centre. House prices are typically less than a third of the cost of Sydney or Melbourne; living there would provide the ideal antidote to the stresses of city life. With regular flights you would only be one hour from Sydney or Melbourne, and just two hours’ drive from Canberra.
Although in an agricultural heartland, the town is developing a young professional demographic, offering an active lifestyle in a relaxed atmosphere. You can take advantage of quality dining, with regional gourmet foods and wine, and a broad range of entertainment and shopping. There is also a thriving arts community, as well as a delightful blend of heritage and modern architecture. Schools and Universities in the area exceed those in other regional locations.
Known as the ‘City of Good Sports’, the location offers year round sporting activities for locals and visitors which includes golf, tennis, cricket, netball, soccer, Australian rules and rugby, athletics and hockey. Summer activities include fishing, jet skiing, sailing, canoeing, rowing and kayaking in the surrounding rivers, lakes and dams.
